A 10 slide PowerPoint presentation that introduces students to King Akhenaten. A focus is set toward the forensic diagnosis that Akhenaten had Marfan's syndrome (while teaching, mentioning that Cleopatra and Tut also had this helps keep the students perked up). A very simple version of the history of Akhenaten's attempt to create a new monotheistic religion is explained, and then the PowerPoint ends with a writing prompt that tasks students with predicting how Egyptian society probably reacted to Akhenaten's actions.
This presentation purposely leaves out some major details in order to allow students to hypothesize during their writing prompt. A more complete version of the history should be taught later in your unit.
